Leading The Blind

Republican or Democrat,

the wool has been pulled


Over the eyes

of a nation of fools


The truth is just fine

if we get it spoon fed


In our favorite flavor

self-served in our beds


While off in the distance

an Angel stands guard


Bemused at the folly

we ‘Stepfords’ regard


And as he takes flight,

looking down at the fray


Seeing into the future…

that reckoning day


When we kill one another,

without knowing why


Lost sheep running rampant

—redemption denied


(Garrett Hill Pennsylvania: October, 2020)
